and they are but you must take out the seeds. Why because
they can be toxic to your bird.
Lurking in the seeds are danger for your bird. They
contain poison, in the form of amygdalin, a cyanide and
sugar compound which can be broken down in the body into the highly
hydrogen cyanide. However, the amount in an apple seed is
tiny, not enough to cause harm to a person but in a bird it
will as they are much smaller bodied than we are and so it
takes a much smaller amount to be dangerous or even lethal for them.
Apple seeds if swallowed whole are not harmful
at all as the seed passes through the body unnoticed and intact the danger occurs
when they are broken open or chewed to release the harmful
Because a bird will crack open a seed to eat
it this makes apple seeds very dangerous for them and always wash all
fruits well to remove harmful pesticides that may be present.
